Police say Lafayette Street man was 'fugitive from justice'
Milford police took a Lafayette Street man into custody July 7 on a warrant out of New Jersey.
Police said they were notified by the Hudson Country Sheriff’s Department in New Jersey that Michael Vidart, 46, was possibly living at 40 Lafayette Street and that he had an extraditable warrant for his arrest. After this information was confirmed, Vidart was located at a Lafayette Street address and placed into custody, police said.
Vidart was charged with being a fugitive from justice and he was held in police custody on a $500,000 bond.
Police did not release details of the initial charges against Vidart. An Internet posting, however, notes that a Michael Vidart of the same age living in New Jersey was arrested in 2009 on burglary charges.
